Formulation highlights:

Meadowfoam Seed Oil XPR moisturizes scalp, reduces Trans Epidermal Water Loss (TEWL) and extends shelf life of shea butter. Daikon Seed Extract improves skin barrier function while improving hair strength and shine. Shea butter helps prevent strand breakage. Bamboo stem powder exfoliates to remove dead skin cells and product build up on scalp. NaturePep Sacha Inchi, rich in omega-3s, locks in scalp moisture and decreases scalp roughness. Peppermint and tea tree essential oil provide an invigorating, cooling sensation.
